The “Best Little Fest in the West” is back after a pandemic hiatus. Sayler Park Sustains’ annual festival returns Saturday, June 10.
The nonprofit’s annual sustainability festival will be held from noon to 10 p.m. in Nelson Sayler Memorial Park. The event is free and family-friendly and will feature workshops on urban agriculture and sustainable living with the goal to educate and empower festival-goers to bring DIY and sustainable practices into their daily lives. Some of the things you can learn about include beekeeping, keeping backyard chickens or fiber goats, vegetable gardening and the Ohio River’s ecosystems.
Vendors, raffles, food trucks and locally produced beer and cocktails will be on hand. Local musicians, including the Tillers, Jordan Smart and Rabbit Hash String Band Square Dance, will also be performing.
Going Green(er): Cincinnati Researchers are Focusing on the Climate Challenges that Intimately Affect Residents: Cincinnati is one of 23 (and counting) urban cities across North America that have publicly committed to reducing energy consumption, water use and transportation emissions by at least 50% before scientists say it’s too late.
Festival organizers say they’re excited for the event’s first post-COVID season.
“We’re excited to bring back the Best Little Fest in the West,” Mike Oberst, festival co-founder, said in a press release. “What better way to spend the day, hanging with your neighbors, meeting new ones, learning attainable ways to become more eco-conscious and self-sufficient, all while rocking out to your favorite bands from near and far.”
